TCF Financial (TCF) Upgraded by Zacks Investment Research to “Buy”

Zacks Investment Research upgraded shares of TCF Financial (NYSE:TCF) from a hold rating to a buy rating in a research note published on Wednesday. They currently have $27.00 price target on the bank’s stock.

According to Zacks, “Shares of TCF Financial have outperformed the industry over the past six months. Also, the company has a decent earnings surprise history, surpassing the Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings in two of the trailing four quarters. The company’s increasing loans and strong deposit mix will likely continue to aid profitability. Also, it has been benefiting from improving credit quality in consumer real estate portfolio and has witnessed enhanced profitability ratios as well, which keeps us encouraged. However, TCF Financial’s revenues continue to be hurt by the persistently declining banking fees over the last few years. Nevertheless, its several ongoing initiatives, including digital strategy, remains a tailwind.”
